One giant buck there. Congrats to the hunter. Ignore the controversy surrounding the hunt. I've never seen the need to hunt a fenced area but 1200 acres is big and you can't knock it till you've tried it.

Nice deer.

Not so sure you can determine on the hoof weight by the weight of processed meat received. If you received sausage you are also weighing pork as well as venison.

Excellent buck. Myself and 4 other guys will be hunting 15 minutes from where you shot your buck this fall.

Doc I agree with you all the way . Fair Chase? Ok guys lets think about this a little 1200 acers come on i dont care what the land looks like. A free whitetail deer will move atleast double that and 3 times that in the rut. As far as the 30000 acres and them knowing the deer and the location its called scouting they have to scout 30000 acers not 1200. Ask this question without a high fence would that deer be staying there for sure?

I'm not here to judge. My outlook is to each his own. I will say though I belonged to a hunt club in SC that was 1200 acres and there were some big bucks pushing 160' 170's on it. Had quite a few pics of them. While they might go onto ajoining property once in awhile. It still was a needle in a hay stack. 1200 acres is a lot of land. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

I dunno.....I hunt every year on an 11,000 acre ranch. While I'm there for the 9 day season, I see quite a few of the same deer multiple times....now if I operated the same place for the purpose of only hunting (it's a cattle ranch) I'd assume I'd have a better idea of where these same deer were, as well as many other deer. And this is on a property 10X bigger than the one in question. To me 1200 really ISN'T that big.

With that said, to each their own.
